Haven Craig Tara Sports & Leisure
The huge indoor pool complex is without doubt one of the parks best features, it has a flume and slides and is used for much more than just simple swimming. If you enjoy being in, or on the water, you will find a whole array of activities to try including Aqua Jets, Aqua Gliders and Water Walkerz. Fun inflatable sessions are also a regular feature during peak times and are a big hit with kids of all ages.
If you can drag yourself away from the pool area you will find a wide choice of sports on offer. Bike and Kart hire, Golf, Football and Crazy Golf are among the more traditional ones while Archery, Fencing, Lazar Combat, Abseiling and the Climbing Wall offer adrenaline boosting alternatives. Some of the activities may incur extra charges but all represent fantastic value and are really worth doing.
Other fun family activities include the mini 10 pin bowling, the remote controlled cars and the new indoor Orbitals. Young children in particular will enjoy the Wake and Shake area with the space hoppers, trampolines, hula hoops and Frisbee fun! Wake and Shake sessions are held each morning and are not to be missed.
Some activities are subject to a moderate extra charge

Papa John's experienced chefs use 100% hand made dough and fresh seasonal ingredients to make pizzas that are extra special. They also offer a take away service, so you can enjoy your pizza in the comfort of your own holiday home.
Kids Will Love
One of the reasons that so many families return to Craig Tara year after year is the fabulous children's facilities. Happy children equal happy parents, so making sure that they are entertained and have the chance to make new friends is a top priority here. Little ones aged 1-4 will find the friendly staff at the Little Cubs Club always ready to tell a story , sing a song or get stuck in to some messy crafts. As this club is for younger children who may be unsure of the surroundings, parents are asked to stay. Children aged 5-11 have the Club R&B to enjoy. Here they can learn about nature, become detectives, try a day at circus school and enjoy a wide variety of games and contests. During the summer holidays teenagers can also hang out at the T-Co Zone.
